An unspecified amount of cash, a firearm, and a cellphone were among the many items thieves recently stole from Bossier City, Louisiana’s Boomtown Casino Hotel. The theft took place after a clerk by accident sent the three would-be suspects to an occupied room.

Many of the items were stolen from the hotel room. Other loot was taken from the guest’s pricey Jaguar SUV.

Local authorities in Bossier City announced Wednesday in a Facebook post they are on the lookout for the suspects. Two are women and the third is a man.

The trio had checked into the casino at about 5:20 pm on April 4, KTAL, a local TV station reported. They were given a key to the room.

Instead of informing the front desk about the error, they stole the cash, a keyless entry device for a Jaguar, sifted through luggage, and stole an iPhone 11.

The suspects then located the SUV in the casino lot. They used the remote key to enter the SUV, and took more money, as well as a handgun from the vehicle.

At about 9 pm that same night, they fled in a 2007 black Chevy Tahoe. They never bothered to check out of the casino-hotel.

Those with information on the crime can contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at 318-424-4100 or can log onto www.p3tips.com. Information about the crime can lead to a reward.

Recent Casino Robbery

In other Louisiana casino-related crime, a man remains on the loose after he robbed Louisiana’s Lucky Dollar Casino early Easter Sunday morning. He stole an unspecified amount of cash from the Greensburg gaming property.

During the robbery, the suspect displayed what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun. He then fled southeast toward Old Highway 10, Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa said. A description of the suspect was released by authorities later this week.

He is believed to be about 5-feet, 8-inches tall, of medium build. While at the casino, he was wearing a blue and gray or blue and white hoodie, dark-colored pants, and dark-colored rubber boots. Casino staff also said he had a soft-spoken voice.

Bomb Threats

A year ago, a casino security guard in Bossier City was charged with allegedly calling in two bomb threats to his place of employment. He worked at Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel & Casino.

The bomb threats were called into the Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel & Casino on March 26, 2021. Police and firefighters searched the property. No devices were found.

Darell Ligin Davis, 21, of Shreveport was arrested on April 28. He was charged with two counts of communicating false information of a planned arson.

Police did not give a motive for Davis’ alleged actions. It was not immediately known how the case was adjudicated.
